Question about EA Sports MVP Baseball 2005 for Windows

1 Answer

MVP 2003 I have vista... I downloaded all updates and tried running in all compatability modes and as admin but every time i try to run EA MVP 2003 it says "MVP 2003 requires direct x 8.1 and graphics hardware acceleration" I checked and I have direct x 10 installed and have also installed 9 and 8.1 just in case and also checked and my graphics card driver is updated and capable of 3d hardware acceleration. it is also enabled. I ran a progrma on the MVP disc and it says all checks out except that it thinks I am running Windows NT what do I do?

    Tryed the solution and it did not make any difference. I talked to EA Tech support and they said they think it is just not compatible with Vista. Perhaps there is a download out there that could trick the game into thinking i am running XP anyway still same problem with no solutions that work.

    Tried all the suggestion and still have the same problem. I talked to EA tech and he said that they think MVP 2003 is simply not compatible with Vista. Maybe there is a program out there that will trick the game into thinking I have XP. Anyway still the same problem as before.

Photo explotion will not launch after the first time i use it. i have to uninstall and reinstall it to use it again :{ it work fine with windows vista but i now have window 7.


Welcome to Fixya. Have you tried running the software in Compatibility Mode? Depending on your version of Windows 7, you may have the ability to run it in Compatibility Mode. Try right-clicking on the Photo Explosion shortcut that is on your Desktop. Then, go to Properties from the pop-up menu. Then, select the Compatibility tab. On that tab, put a check next to "Run the program in compatibility mode for:". Then, select Windows XP SP2. Click on the OK button to save this setting. Finally, try launching the program again.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have windows vista. I am trying to install ansys 11 on my laptop but the installation never starts. It stops on the page with install shield wizard. I downloaded a newer install shield version based on...

make sure that the install runs under administratives privileges, when executing an app that requieres admin rights the UAC will prompt to run the app under elevated rights, also you could try the following:

right click over the app installer

click on properties

go to the tab compatibility

check mark the box for ( run this program in compatibility mode for)

select windows XP SP3

also check the box that says ( Run this program as Administrator )

click apply and then ok

try to run the application now.

some apps won't run in vista unless a compatibility mode is set, but if this doesn't work you may want to try looking for a installer compatible with vista.

Cant install my pinnacl 110i on windows 7. Any one had success with that? It was working perfectly well with Vista. But I'm a ****** for pain! :D

Download updated VISTA drivers from here:
If the driver have an installer try to install from it.
If not success try to run the installer in compatibility mode (right click - properties - compatibility tab - run in compatibility mode with WINDOWS VISTA)
If all of those steps faill try to MANUALLY install the driver:
Go to device manager, select your device, right click on it and select update controller software - try to find it in Windows Update (online)
If not driver available online try again, but select the "find on my computer" option, and select a folder containing the drivers.
An excellent website to find drivers and solutions is:

Sims complete collection won't run on my windows vista

Hello.. The Sims collection does have some compatability issues with vista but EA has worked on it and actually it should run fine.May be any running process is conflicting with the game or you may have to update your Display drivers.
Also try using the compatability mode.Just right click on the game *.exe and select properties.then select the compatability tab and check the box "run in compatability with Win Xp[sp2]".
In adition you can check for any available patches here.

Is quick books 2003 Vista compatabile?

QuickBooks Pro 2003 can run on Windows Vista. Right-click a shortcut to open Quickbooks (or qbw32.exe directly) and click on Properties. Select the Compatibility tab. Under Compatibility Mode, check the box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the list. Under privilege level, select "Run this program as an administrator." Select OK and everything will work.
